Here is what I liked about it:
*very clean with great showers, nice firm beds and a wonderful view
*small giving it more of a bed & breakfast feel then hotel
*nice location - away from main street Santa Elena but close enough for a short affordable taxi ride with several good restuarants in closer walking distance
*great service - they helped us plan our activities and their advice proved to be spot on, very welcoming, complimentary breakfast of made-to-order eggs was lovely, good job with the laundry
*family opperated - young kids on premise made it homey (but they were not noisy or disruptive)
It is a bit out of the way so if you want to be in the thick of it stay somewhere on main street Santa Elena. Also the free internet they offer was not working most of the time we stayed. This may be true of anywhere in Monteverde area for all I know.
